Filmy Friday - The ‘Bobby’ look

Well, we all know for a fact that fashion trends keep repeating periodically. But there are some trends/styles that are classic n versatile and my look is about one of them - Polka dots!
Effortless, ever-green n chic! Pair it with skirts, shorts, pants, denims if you will or dress up for a formal wear or dress down for a casual chic, you will always look great!

Staying true to the Filmy theme for Fridays, my inspiration photo is from a movie but way back from the 70s (1973 to be specific, I was not even born then ;)) It’s a look from a very renowned and blockbuster movie ‘Bobby’ from the Indian Film Industry (also called as ‘Bollywood’). This particular outfit has since been an iconic look in India and so when I scored these navy blue shorts, I couldn’t wait to try it out! What really inspired me is that even though it’s a simple polka dot blouse and navy blue skirt, it looked so stylish and comfy (and bold too). 

When I dressed up for a strawberry picking and sunny afternoon at a farm with my family (this time - last year), I paired my polka dot blouse with pair of comfortable navy blue shorts. I added a bit of zing (gotta have some zing people!!) with the red cross body bag, chunky metal necklace and my tribal ankle strap flats.

‘Polka dots’ are super versatile and exceptionally useful when mixing prints or mixing trends (colored denims, neons, tribal print). So, tell me..has any ‘retro’ look inspired you lately and have you tried dressing up in that look?

Shorts and top: H&M ($20 each)
Red cross body bag: NEU look (from my trip to Ireland)
Metal chunky necklace, earrings and ankle strap flats: Target
Sunglasses: Guess
Watch: Anne Klein
